I think you should watch it again and pay attention to what actually happens through the lens of what is possible and legal, meanwhile make a list of all Derren's lies and misdirection in the piece.

He's an Illusionist. Nothing more. He is creating an illusion.
Yeah after watching it again, the guy had met Derren and signed a contract - in very weird circumstances yes, but he signed it nonetheless.

Although he technically/physically awoke from his hypnotic state in another country, it isn't the same as if he hadn't applied for the Derren Brown show nor met him prior, and awoke in that place.

There are donkeys and cats. I snatched a kitten from outside last night after noticing that a mouse had moved in. Most days we eat tagine. In the evenings we play chess and instruments and whittle wood. I started a thermalsiphon water heater project and leaning how to play Go. I let a second kitten in because they were crying for each other. Winter low is ~10C.

It's a pretty perfect place for me right now. I'll probably stay a while.
I still think it's kinda mad, but cool, that Kowalski is doing this whole off-the-grid thing.

Sounds like you're having a fun adventure tho.

Nah, man. You didn't see it.

Just from memory: Derren goes into the kid's bedroom with a 3 man camera crew and wakes him up in the middle of the night and he's super chill about it... because it wasn't a surprise. He wakes up but his girlfriend does not... because it's fake. Derren gets him to sign a contract without reading it and even states that he didn't have to read it. Do you not sign people up to contracts at work? You should know how totally illegal it is to encourage someone to sign something that they haven't read and don't understand. It didn't happen. He signed another real contract at a different time and was encouraged to read it. There is the claim that all the cameras are "very well hidden" why say "very well" because it's a lie. Every camera shot from a supposedly hidden camera has something out of focus blocking part of the view. That's a theatrical move. Derren says that he puts the kid into a catatonic state. He does not. That is a lie. He says the catatonic state is caused by some lights and sounds. That is impossible. The guy who created the lights show is an artist not a scientist. Derren says he was in this catatonic state (which is not true) for 13 hours. How did he piss and shit and drink water... well, because it is a lie. It takes 3 hours and 5 minutes to fly London to Marrakech. A little driving. The check in process. Ok. But what were they doing for the other approx. 7 hours? Nothing, it's a lie. You can't just stroll through airport security with an unconscious person. It's totally illegal. Yet Derren claims to do just that. When the kid "wakes up" he shows how bad an actor he is. He's like a cat that you just brought home in a bag and is now looking around your home. The room you are in now, imagine if the next time you blinked it was replaced by a completely different room what your reaction would definitely be.

It's so fake because Derren is an Illusionist and this is an illusion. Illusionists don't do the things they say they do, they create an illusion where the audience and any legit participants think they are doing the things they say they are doing.

I can't believe I'm having to explain how magic works to you.

You know when you pretend to take a baby's nose but you haven't really done it but you create the illusion that you have. Well that is what Derren does but to adults. And he's very good at it and is highly entertaining. And if you really listen to what he says in the shows and when being interviewed and in his book, he admits it. But he admits it in a guarded way that not everyone listening will pick up on.


Peace,

kowalski

I have nothing to say to in terms of argument, all of what you say is true and accurate, I'd just watched it an hour ago. He does all this, "hidden in plain sight" stuff but when scrutinised thoroughly as you've done, you can see through it.

The biggest part for me that I was like yea ok Derren, whatever is the taking an unconscious person through an airport and boarding them on a plane, that just wouldn't happen.

I've got his book "Tricks of the Mind" but ain't read it yet.

What do you think about the zombie apocalypse show he done, more fakery?

I've been here nearly 3 weeks now. The first projects I've started are moving along well, I own a chicken and it's bamboo coup is nearly finished, I'm teaching the children chess, I've nearly finished the planning stage for my thermalsiphon and I've held their first ever official meetings (3 so far).

My aim is to stay long enough for them to learn the benefits of having structure and processes and adopt those behaviours. It's still the beginning so they've not really seen the value yet. The best examples I have so far are counterfactuals, i.e. times when my methods were not used and things went wrong.


Peace,

What will the thermosiphon be used for? Just general water heating?

If you don’t call your chicken Garry Clucksparov you’d be doing it a disservice

Yes, water. It doesn't get cold enough to need home heating.

At first I thought everyone had hot water except in the association but later I realised nearly no one has it. To shower they boil a kettle, mix with cold water in a bucket and sit on a stool over the toilet hole. The idea is - build the first one at the association, show that it is effective, cheap and low maintainence, define all the uses and benefits, start installing them on people's homes, potentially develop it into gainful employment for one or more association members... and retain the grey water for cultivation.

I just started teaching the kids how to play mastermind, if any of you remember that logic game? I really want to develop their ability to create and test complex strategies. Here even the adults struggle with mastermind... some adult males can't even throw and catch well. Some even told me stickball (rounders / baseball but with a broom handle bat) was too difficult for the kids. They've seen me teach 6 year olds how to play chess now, so they are beginning to accept that if I say I can teach them something I can.

Gary Klucksparov it is!


Peace,

kowalski

Default Checkmate, fools. - 26-12-2018, 03:06 PM

On the day I arrived in Khimiss de Tioughza the guys in the association were playing draughts and discussing communism. I told them draughts and communism are for children and started teaching them about chess and individualism

A week or so later more volunteers arrived. One had a lot of really bad ideas including the belief he would beat me at chess. I told him 'no', he ignored me.

Then in a conversation with Lahoucine I predicted the future. And as predicted...

The leader of the association vetoed his ideas. This pissed him off. He 'secretly' organised against me. His first error was being secretive. He allied himself with the other volunteers. His choice of allie was his second error. He pushed for the election of a head volunteer. The election was his third error. And prepared the others to vote against me. His assumption that I would run for election was his fourth error. Meanwhile... I continued to conduct myself in an honest way. I continued to ally myself with the locals. I refused to put my name in the hat. I abstained from voting on any topic.

All of this helped my broader plan of organising the association to be more effective. And lead to the leader of the association and I having a philosophical discussion about transparency, hierarchy and decision making. After which there will be no more voting and he insisted that I take the role of head volunteer. Sticking to my principles, we redefined the role as planner. First, in an open discussion, we came up with goals, then strategies for achieving them. So now I'm the planner here.

I figured it would take around 3 more months for me to get things to where they are now. By providing such a perfect example of how not to do things that kid really helped me speed things along. It's weird when people can't see the obvious signs that they are inferior to their opponent in the game they are about to play.

Last night I went to Ceuta, which is Spain but in Morocco, to renew my visa. This marks the end of the beginning. Now for Phase 2!


Peace,

kowalski
